I took the family out for some seafood here and I have to say that it was the second worst fish and chips I ever had. I grew up in New England, lived in Australia for four years and travelled to England, so I know good fish and chips when I have it, or in this case, when I don't.... More

I'm to the point in age that I've tried many many restaurants, and my ability to eat at the giant chain restaurants is diminishing each year. Too many shortcuts, pre-packaged foods are mixed into the menus, and this place is no exception. Especially on the Kid's Menu, where popcorn shrimp and chicken fingers look exactly like what you can find... More

Good place for dinner and a chat. Overall dim mood lighting and very quiet. Food was fine and fast, wait staff was capable and friendly. Good experience overall. Skip the coconut shrimp, they are ok but Outback's are better. Shrimp fettuccini alfredo was very good.

They stayed open an extra hour for us. We were from out of town. Didn't realize what time it was because of the time change from our place. They stayed open late to accommodate us. Great service and food.

Enjoyed lunch here again with colleague. Food is always good, and the space is nice for talking business - or just talking among friends. Not too noisy and tables not too close together like some places. Everything that I have ever ordered has been really good, and service is mindful of lunchtime constraints. Good choice.

This was an excellent selection for many in our group staying at the Comfort Inn. We didn't have to wait for a table and had a very nice server, who made sure we had everything we needed.

Enjoyed lunch at this cosy restaurant with my husband. Serves are very generous and They serve unlimited cheese biscuits. Salads were crisp and fresh and the menu is extensive with lobster and other tasty seafood prepared in many ways. Friendly staff and good service.
